Dr. Eileen Wirth Chair and Public Relations Track 402-280-3014
If you're a journalism major who wants to hang out with your chair, lace up a pair of gym shoes and head for the campus fitness center or the library if she doesn't happen to be in the office.
Dr. Eileen Wirth, who joined Creighton in 1991 after a long career in news and corporate PR, revels in informal contacts with her students at places like the Kiewit Fitness Center, Reinert Alumni Library and St. John's Church. Her office door is always open to students seeking advice about classes, careers, co-curriculars - you name it. She writes numerous letters of recommendations and constantly connects students with JMC alums and media professionals seeking interns and employees.
"You welcomed me to your office with a big hug and smile, reassuring me that all would be fine and I always had your number to dial," wrote one senior as she graduated.
That typifies the spirit of JMC department.
"Sure I've written five books and received an award or two but the daily opportunity to work one-on-one with students is what keeps me going at 75 miles an hour," said Dr. Wirth.
Dr. Wirth grew up on a farm and holds her BA, MA and Ph.D. from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln as well as an MA from the University of Minnesota. She was a reporter at the Omaha World-Herald for 11 years then worked in corporate PR at Union Pacific Railroad for eight years. Her books include They Made All the Difference, the story of the nation's Jesuit high schools published by Loyola Press.
Besides working out six days a week, she loves to read, do volunteer work and writes reflections for Creighton's online ministry site. She's the proud parent of a Creighton graduate.

By Eileen Wirth, PhD
Eileen Wirth, a university professor and parent of a Jesuit high school student, shows how the answer is rooted in a compelling educational vision that dates back nearly 500 years, to the earliest days of St. Ignatius Loyola and the Society of Jesus. This vision, marked by acute sensitivity to the individual, a fierce commitment to excellence, a concern for the poor, and a spirituality that prizes self-knowledge and flexibility, animates each school's academics, discipline, athletics, student life, and spiritual dimension.
Throughout the book, Wirth shows how this grand vision is embodied in people. Readers are introduced to a Hall of Fame of individuals who make Jesuit high schools so great: teachers, chaplains, disciplinarians, coaches, parents and students. The book ends with short biographies of notable Jesuit alumni and a profile of each Jesuit high school.
Eileen Wirth is a professor of journalism and mass communications at Creighton University. She worked for many years as a newspaper reporter and as a corporate public relations executive. She has written four books and numerous articles for national publications.
